ABB's hire drive service can provide a temporary boost in capacity, or get systems back up and running after a breakdown
ABB has launched a variable speed drive (VSD) hire fleet across the UK and Ireland, with units extending from 3 kW up to several megawatts. Hire drives can be delivered the same day, and installed and commissioned within a matter of hours by engineers from one of 12 ‚Äčauthorised value providers.

Customers can choose from a wide range, including the general purpose drive, machinery drive and industrial drive. All are fully maintained and pre-loaded with the latest firmware. 
The company says hiring can deliver benefits in the event of an emergency or unexpected failure, if the customer needs temporary capacity, to judge energy savings prior to a purchase, and for equipment testing.

Drives are hired at a fixed daily rate (minimum hire period may apply), which includes installation and maintenance.
